Message from Simon-Allies:
die roll for sides in PTO scenario
if dr is even, Dave = Japan
I'll set up a new ACTS module to use shortly
211 3/26/2019 1:26:00 AM Turn 1 Dave-Axis Message We can stick a fork in this - it's done! I forgot to mention that I put the GE Flag in reserve and I would interrupt to roll for an alliance. If successful that would pretty much seal the deal as I could use GE air to help IT attacks too.

Oh well... I only had one more offensive in the pool and it was IT. I could try to convert the GE flags into military actions but I only had two of those left.

I think the key would be taking Paris since I think that makes the surrender number 4 or 5. Getting the FR-UK alliance would be critical as the UK air and tanks could protect Paris.

I'm up for the PTO scenario. I'll let you pick the side!!

156 3/25/2019 2:24:00 AM Turn 1 Dave-Axis Message Interesting. IT actually can't use that Offensive for builds since IT is not a belligerent yet.

I think I will interrupt to try to knock France out. I'll spend the IT Offensive to get 2 military actions

1. Augmentation
2. Land Operation - Lombardy attacks Provence

Ramifications:

- IT and FR are at War (place cubes showing a separate war to the GE-FR war)
- FR gets a flag and now I think UK does too (but no matter, they don't have any free ones). FR flag must go in the pool

Ok - I think that's it. Pretty simple combat - no air, no tanks, just Inf (+1 for me augmentation, +1 for you for terrain).
155 3/25/2019 2:08:00 AM Turn 1 Simon-Allies Message FR mobilization does indeed provoke IT, but it does not provoke SU
From IT provocation, UK flag into reserve, FR flag into chit pool
FR will interrupt and will play FR Offensive fro reserve for 2 builds
Build 2x Air from force pool. 1 Air into FR reserve, 1 Air into chit pool
You can now interrupt with IT, and I'm guessing you will, in order to build 2x Air like I just did with FR.
It's starting to come home to roost that BR and FR couldn't form an Alliance, as GE (plus IT soon) can direct it's attack at FR, which can't receive much help from BR. No help at all from BR right now as BR is still neutral, and it'll take 2x BR flag plays to get BR into the game (increasing commitment to mobilization assuming dr is successful, then DoW). Even then, the lack of a FR-BR alliance means BR help to FR isn't very effective. I certainly gave it my best effort to make a BR-FR Alliance, but the low FR effectiveness makes it difficult - it was 33% likely that I'd fail to make the BR-FR Alliance with a 1 die roll plus a 1 die roll with +1drm.
In any event, I'm signing off for the night.
154 3/25/2019 1:45:00 AM Turn 1 Dave-Axis Message Success:L
- FR and UK gain a flag (that might have been a bad idea)
- I increase my force pool by 2 (add 2xAIR to the force pool)
- I get one IT Offensive for Lombardy (will leave Rome alone)
- I'll put that IT Offensive in Reserve

I think that's it. You tell me where the flags go (FR must go in the pool, UK Flag can go in reserve)

And you can interrupt with FR or UK (if you put the Flag there).

IT: Il Duce
FR: Offensive

However, with your mobilization of FR, that provokes IT and SU. GE can't be provoked since we're at war.

Place IT flag in the cup
Place SU cube on France.

I will not interrupt right now and France can't interrupt. So I will draw a chit.
147 3/25/2019 1:31:00 AM Turn 1 Simon-Allies Message OK, I think you're correct with all that.
I'll add Armor upgrade, an army, and a fortress unit to FR force pool
I'll put the FR Offensive in reserve
OK, now it's either IT interrupt or a chit pull, right? Or do you have anything in GE reserve? (I don't think you do, do you?)
146 3/25/2019 1:21:00 AM Turn 1 Dave-Axis Message So, Status Quo is dead (as soon as I mobilized). Therefore you CAN draw resources from non-Home areas (see red box under 4.4.2).

So I think you can draw on Rumania, but I don't see a path for Czech. I think when you controlled Poland there was a viable path (through Denmark) but without Poland I think Czech has no LOC.

Thus you can burn the Rumania resource in your next production. It doesn't help you with the Mobilization - only Industrial resources (like Czech) turn into bonus Offensive chits.

So, I think you get 3 added to your force pool, and one Offensive. And that Offensive can go into Reserve.
145 3/25/2019 1:15:00 AM Turn 1 Dave-Axis Message So, the good news is that you don't need to roll to increase commitment if you are a belligerent. See second sentence of 6.4. You still needed to spend the flag but it is automatically successful.

You increase your force pool by 3 units, and get at least 1 Offensive (for Paris). Now that you're a belligerent you might be able to draw on those minor countries... Let me check.
144 3/25/2019 1:11:00 AM Turn 1 Dave-Axis Message > If UK is a co-belligerent with FR vs. GE, is the UK allowed to move units into Paris and/or Lorraine, even though BR and FR aren't allied? (I realize that UK can't interrupt right now)

I don't think so (99% sure). Right now only FE and FE are belligerents (put FR-GE cubes in the at war space).
143 3/25/2019 1:08:00 AM Turn 1 Simon-Allies Message FR commitment increase roll fails. I've lost track of who can interrupt next - maybe IT?

141 3/25/2019 1:07:00 AM Turn 1 Simon-Allies Message OK, I'm rather losing track of what's going on here, but I really don't think it matters as FR is most certainly circling the drain.

FR will interrupt, and will use a flag to try and increase commitment (which will get me commitment offensives, which I can use for builds)

Rolling for commitment removes the failed cubes from the Alliance box (which just ain't gonna happen)

* hmm, not entirely sure what FR can do about anything, but I guess I'm happy I'm still in the game.
Mind you, there's no way the same Dave die roll clusterf@ck can happen again the next time you get a GE offensive chit come up

So is UK now at war with GE too?
If UK is a co-belligerent with FR vs. GE, is the UK allowed to move units into Paris and/or Lorraine, even though BR and FR aren't allied? (I realize that UK can't interrupt right now)

As for your attack on Lorraine, yes I agree that UK does not get a flag (not allied with FR, Lorraine isn't a UK interest).

Air combat was indeed a 5:1 smackdown, so 2x FR air units lost. At least there isn't a Triumph/Disaster resolution for air combat (only land and naval combat).

Upcoming land combat is gonna be ugly. GE get 3 dice (+1 die for air superiority) with +1 drm (augmentation). FR get 1 die (-1 die because of GE armor superiority) with 0 drm (-1 for surprise, +1 for fortress) - OOF!

On the bright side, I think this scenario is going to be over in a hurry...

136 3/24/2019 11:19:00 PM Turn 1 Dave-Axis Message I'm forgetting how combat works, but I think that's a 5:1 whacking, so both FR air units are whacked (go into force pool).

I have to leave now - will be back (and hopefully no erors)

Air combat:
GE 2 dice (+1 for augmentation)
FR 2 dice (-1 for surprise)

1,2 = GE dice
3,4 = FR dice
134 3/24/2019 11:17:00 PM Turn 1 Dave-Axis Message Have 5 mins:

- So I move 1xINF and 1xTANK from Ruhr to Lorraine
- France gets a Flag, but I don't think the UK does. If I had attacked Paris it would be adjacent to London, but I don't think the UK has any interests in any of the spaces adjacent to Lorraine.
- I assume the Flag goes in Reserve
- I will bring in both Air units for support, I assume you will do the same with your FR air units (UK air too far away)

Air combat is first:
GE 2 dice (+1 for augmentation)
FR 2 dice (-1 for surprise)
133 3/24/2019 11:15:00 PM Turn 1 Simon-Allies Message >>> OK - here is what happened this turn. Sorry about the confusion <<<

* hmm, I have a feeling that the order of things you gave might not be quite right, but it really doesn't matter. What you've done is fine - have at it!

132 3/24/2019 11:12:00 PM Turn 1 Dave-Axis Message OK - I will Interrupt (after your failed alliance roll #2) with the GE Offensive

- I get 2 military actions with it
- I will use one for Augmentation
- I will use the other for a Land Operation against Lorraine

I have to take care of some stuff. Will be back soon!
131 3/24/2019 11:09:00 PM Turn 1 Dave-Axis Message OK - here is what happened this turn. Sorry about the confusion:

1. GE Interrupt - GE Flag - Mobilization
2. UK Interrupt - UK-FR Alliance
3. GE Interrupt - GE Offensive (build GE Armor)
4. Draw GE Inf (Bavaria)
5. Crisis (UK Effectiveness to 1)
6. GE Interrupt GE Armor Upgrade
7. IT Offensive (not implemented)

So, let's draw this back to #3 above GE Offensive:
- remove GE Inf from Bavaria (back into Chit Pool)
- put Crisis chit back in pool (UK Effectiveness back to 2)
- put GE Offensive back in reserve (from available)
- flip GE in Ruhr (Ruhr now has 1xINF, 1xTANK, 2xAIR, Fleet)
- Armor upgrade goes back in Force Pool (force pool now has 2xINF, 2xAIR, 2xSUB, 1xFLEET, 1xArmor Upgrade, 1xAir Upgrade)

With that, I think we're ready to go.

* I have a feeling your Surprise Attach on Lorraine is going to end things pretty damned fast. The only thing that has a chance of saving me is throwing well for Air Superiority, and even then, I think I'm likely buggered - but we'll see!
129 3/24/2019 9:04:00 PM Turn 1 Dave-Axis Message * I'm not quite sure I see what you're doing here.
You have an Offensive in reserve, so you're using that to convert to 2 Builds (as you're at Mobilization). But don't you use those Builds to build an armor Upgrade (from the Force Pool), which then either goes into the chit cup, or into Reserve? i.e. you don't actually get to use it to upgrade the army in Ruhr right away?

So, I iterrupted with the Offensive, converted it to two builds (which is illegal I now understand if I'm not a belligerent).

It costs 2 builds to buy the Armor Upgrade chit, which can either go into the chit pool or into reserve (which is now open since I just spent the GE Offensive that was there).

I can't interrupt again with the GE Armor Upgrade (that would be two in a row) but after the Crisis marker was resolved I am able to do just that. Interrupt with the Armor upgrade marker which flips an INF in Ruhr (and the Armor Upgrade goes back into the Force Pool).

That's all moot now since I screwed up. I'm about to cook dinner, but I will re-start the turn from the GE Offensive interrupt (which will be a Surprise Attack on Lorraine). We'll see how it goes!
128 3/24/2019 8:59:00 PM Turn 1 Simon-Allies Message I think we only need to unwind back until your GE interrupt - just use your GE offensive from Reserve to pre-empt, and use as you will.
I have a feeling a GE attack vs. FR is going to finish this game off pretty quickly
(the main reason for me to try again with the BR-FR alliance was so I could move the BR Armour into FR to try handheld off the Nazi hordes - without an ARM to defend, the GE are going to go through FR like a hot knife through butter)

127 3/24/2019 8:54:00 PM Turn 1 Simon-Allies Message >>> I will now interrupt and upgrade one of the Inf units in Ruhr. <<<

126 3/24/2019 8:48:00 PM Turn 1 Dave-Axis Message Oops. I can't spend convert Offensives into builds unless I'm a belligerent.

So way back a few chits ago my move is screwed up.

What should I do?

I can go back to the start of the turn and I will likely play that GE Offensive at the start of the turn for a Surprise Attack on France?

That's not undoing too many things (UK Effectiveness moves up, put GE Inf back in the pool, and I think that's it).

I'll stop here - please advise!

124 3/24/2019 8:43:00 PM Turn 1 Dave-Axis Message Well that was dumb. I didn't realize I already had a tank unit in the Ruhr. That was the whole flippin' point of doing these interrupts as I didn't think I could win again France without the armor advantage!!!

That was a waste of time!

OK will draw a chit now.

Right, but once UK is a belligerent you will get a resource point from Asia.

And yes, there are now 2xFR and 2xUK cubes in the Alliance space.

I'm not sure if this is a good idea, but I will interrupt with GE Offensive.

Since I am at mobilization, that converts to 2 military actions. I will use those 2 military actions to build the armor upgrade (out of the force pool) and then place it into reserve.

OK - now we're ready for a chit pull. I can't interrupt with IT since they are facist.

Chit coming...

Do I get another FR and BR failed cube in the Alliance box, i.e. can you have more than 1 failed cube in the failed political action boxes?
Anyway, over to you for a GE pre-empt or IT pre-empt or chit pull

* ah, I keep forgetting that you can't have 2 interrupts in a row from the same ideology
OK, FR will interrupt, and use a flag to try again for the BR-FR alliance (BR also spends it's flag in reserve)
I'm not convinced this is a very good idea as if I succeed both GE and IT will get a flag, but I'll do it anyway
Alliance die roll gets a +1 as both BR and FR have failed cubes in the Alliance box.
